With money tight now more than ever it’s important to stretch those wardrobe dollars but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your Halloween costumes.
Simply pick an era and pick a classic piece of vintage to use as a costume and then intergrate it into your wardrobe by adding accessories or mixing and matching different pieces.
Channel your inner Rizzo and later on mix and match the skirt and top with other pieces.
Be decidedly chic as a 1960s Lady About Town and afterwards take the jacket and pair it up with a pair of dress slacks or a great pair of jeans!
Set your bohemian hippie side free!
Let that 1950s gal come out to play!
The sky’s the limit when you mix and match!

To my mind there is nothing quite like Harris Tweed. I’ve had the pleasure of finding coats for women but most often I have found sports coats and overcoats for men ranging from the 1920s to the 1980s.
Amazingly the coat from the 1920s was in such great condition that I doubted my dating of the coat. An email sent to the Harris Tweed Authority along with the registration number on the Harris Tweed label in the coat quickly informed me that my dating was correct!
So for your pleasure I’ve selected several of my favorite Harris Tweed items available at Born Too Late Vintage.
